Ok Officers #TeeTruong #VuongVu and #DavidNguyen…you think it’s funny comparing black people to monkeys? We know you work in Houston at the Westside Command Station. Let’s see what your commanders think about this. And the other Asians on this group chat in the comments? Keep that same energy. No apologies will do. Black people are tired being treated like animals!
HPD is now investigating whether other officers are involved.
Chief Art Acevedo said the officer had already left the department when it was posted, but added, “We are still going to investigate who else was on there and make sure there are no other employees. I want the community to be our eyes and ears.”
